Inspiring Stories of Weight Loss

I wanted to start sharing stories about other people on the path to health again. Today I was on the Mercy Weight Loss and Nutrition Center website and found Dave's story.

I have been to the site many times and seen his face, but never clicked. It's a great story! He set realistic goals, sought help to make it happen and is nearly at his goal. He looks great and feels even better.

Some days are harder than others. Some days you look at your car keys and the gym seems too far away. Sometimes the burger wins. But if you look around, someone has been through it too. Hearing their story can help.

I figured I would start in our own backyard.  So, here is the link to the video of Dave.

Yours in Health,


  1. That's so cool to see. It made me search out the other videos on the site and Christine was actually in my Optifast classes. It was great to see her success! I wish I'd stuck to it like she did! And I miss Katie and the rest of the gang! I should start going to classes again. Part of me is just embarrassed that I regained. :(

  2. I fully relate WebGal. It's really hard to start all over again, but it's worth it. Don't be embarrassed, be empowered. You have faltered, but you have learned. You know how to avoid the same pitfalls this time! :)
